lipotropic and b12 injections
Many patients notice a metabolic boost and improved weight loss with a weekly injection. Our lipotropic injections contain a blend of methionine, inositol, choline, vitamin B12, L-carnitine, and adenosine. The combination can help to increase energy levels and encourage fat metabolism. Ask to have this added to your regimen. Or you can elect for B12 injections alone. Some people have vitamin B12 deficiencies due to an inability to absorb the vitamin or as a side effect of taking certain medications.Learn More
